  Requiring students to use a certain tool over another is not my
  policy. I tell students to use whatever they want but the result has
  to be XHTML 1.0 strict. That implies the use of CSS as a styling
  language. I spend more time on CSS than on HTML. For students on
  Microsoft computers I mention HTML-Kit.

  It's a freeware, but not open source. I can't recommend it since I
  don't use it myself. But generally, a software that does some syntax
  highlighting is helpful. It's especially good for beginners and for
  folks like me who suffer from dyslexia.

  I fully agree.
